DIY Boo Sign for Halloween
Although I love Halloween, I haven’t always done a lot of decorating for the spooky holiday. My idea of All Hallow’s Eve decor is to turn off the lights and set out a bunch of candles. Then I turn the TV onto the Halloween movie and watch Jamie Lee Curtis suffer through another night of torture. The mood for the evening of Tricks or Treats is set. But this year I decided to have a little fun and I created a DIY Boo sign for Halloween.
Sparkly BOO letters on script stamped canvases are super easy to make.
Let’s get started!
Get 3 small canvasses – I found a packet of 3 at the craft store. Grab your wooden BOO letters, black acrylic paint, and black glitter paint if you want some sparkle, a script stamp, stamping paint, a hot glue gun, and small wooden easels to rest the letters on when done (I forgot to include the little easels in the photo). You can find all these supplies at your local craft store.
I started by stamping the canvases with my script stamp – but you could do anything, really.
Paint ’em, decoupage ’em, or even leave them plain white.
Paint your letters, and add the glitter if you want some sparkle.
Then hot glue the letters onto the canvases when dried.
Then place your letters on the mini easels and set them out with your Halloween or Fall decor.
Quick and easy, which is my favorite kind of project!
I found these cute little pumpkin party bags to add a punch of orange.
This is a sneak peek at some of my Halloween decor.
I’ll reveal the rest next Friday the 17th when I join a group of bloggers to give you a Halloween tour!
How about you? What kind of Halloween decorating do you do?
Here’s a couple of past Halloween posts you might enjoy …
I LOVE IT!!!
Cute unscary craft idea. Im not a Halloween decorator at all, and we have never had a trick -or-treater. I guess when you live in the sticks that’s what happens,
Love this boo sign on canvas. The script stamping on the background is a great touch!
I agree quick and easy decorating is the way to go.
Where did you get your script stamp?
Hi Janice, I found the stamp at Hobby Lobby last year. I don’t know if they still carry it.
